Dear Friends,
If you read the Mass schedule for daily or Sunday masses you might have realized that my name has been missing. No, I didn’t secretly retire and sneak off in the middle of the night. I saved ten days from my summer vacation to take a cruise and so, hopefully, I am sailing the Caribbean under some very warm and sunny skies. By the time you read this, those ten days will be almost over and unless I stow away, I’ll see you next weekend.

So this will be a very short message. I only want to remind you about two things I mentioned last week. The first is the special Mass of Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day. Americans have all sorts of wonderful traditions for Thanksgiving, traditional rivalries at high school football games, the Macy’s Day parade in New York, great family dinners with too much food, football games in the afternoon and evening. One tradition that might be good to start is to begin the day as a family by giving thanks to God for the blessings He has showered on us as a country (and to pray for greater peace and dialogue today), and as a people. I invite you to join us at the 8:30 Mass on Thanksgiving morning and to take home a blessed loaf of bread to break with those gathered around your Thanksgiving table. It might just be a special moment of grace this year. 8:30 Mass on Thursday, Nov. 23rd.

Wednesday, November 29th, Cardinal Tobin will celebrate a special Mass for Deanery 1, which includes Mount Carmel and the 11 others parishes of Northwest Bergen County. The Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Oakland. You can find directions on the parish website. After the Mass, the Cardinal will host an open forum in which he will listen to any and all comments from the laypeople in attendance. This is not only a time to meet our new Archbishop, but to share with him whatever is on your mind or in your heart. Before he sets any vision for the Archdiocese, he wants to hear your thoughts. I invite as many of you as possible to attend what will be a first for our Archdiocese – an open dialogue with our bishop.

God Bless,
Fr. Ron
